Home of the quality Japanese Shiba Inu's​, where our Shiba's are from AKC champion bloodlines. 


Northwest Shibas is a small breeder of Shiba Inu Puppies.

Puppies raised in a home environment with lots of love and care.


All my puppies are AKC Registered & Pedigreed. I concentrate on each and every breeding to produce excellent TOP QUALITY pets, rather than on mass production. It shows in the dogs environment, the condition of the dogs, and the looks of our puppies.

We hope you enjoy viewing our Shiba Inu puppies. . Come on in and take a look around and discover more about us! We hope you find our website entertaining and informative.


Here at Northwest Shibas we adhere to the National Shiba Club of America's Constitution & By-Laws, and Code of Ethics.


We thoroughly love and enjoy our Shiba Inu's, and we strive to produce quality, healthy, and sound, Shiba Inu Puppies as family companions. My Shiba Inu Puppies receive the best care and loving attention at all times. Our Shiba's are a part of our family therefore are raised in our home.

Every Shiba Inu puppy is raised lovingly with children and family members around, to help them adapt to new surroundings. This produces a much more sound and gentle temperament resulting in a much better family companion right from the start. This shows in the puppies we raise, as well as our adult Shiba's. We do not believe in sacrificing anything in the process. Our days are spent interacting with our Shiba, and her puppies, by grooming, walking, playing, and obedience training sessions.


The key to a rich relationship with any Shiba Inu is dependent on good breeding and socialization with other dogs and people interacting with them. Every one of our puppies is bred for excellent health, and temperament to become the best family companion available. We hope that they will meet every expectation you have of them.

If we ask a lot of questions, please do not be upset with us. We are not trying to be nosy, it is our job as a responsible breeder to make sure our Shiba Inu puppies have a loving home for a lifetime.


You are always welcome to visit and to pick up your new Shiba Inu puppy here in North  Idaho. We would gladly encourage you to come and enjoy watching the puppies. The only thing we ask, is that you call and make an appointment.




When our puppies leave our home, they are Happy, Healthy, and Well Socialized, and have had Lots of Tender Loving Care. It is our goal that they stay that way, because anything less just isn't good enough for our beautiful Shiba Inu puppies.








From time to time people will tell me, "Lighten up, it's Just a Dog" or "That's a lot of money for Just a Dog." That's because they understand the distance traveled, time spent, or cost involved for "Just a Dog."

Some of my proudest moments have come about with "Just a Dog." Many hours have passed with my only company being "Just a Dog" and not once have I felt slighted. Some of my saddest moments were brought about by "Just a Dog" and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "Just a Dog" provided comfort and purpose to overcome the day.

If you, too, think it's "Just a Dog," you will probably understand phrases like "Just a Friend" "Just a Sunrise" or "Just a Promise."


"Just a Dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a Dog" brings out the compassion and patience that makes me a better person. Because of "Just a Dog" I will rise earlier, take longer walks and look longingly into the future.

For me and folks like me, it's NOT "JUST A DOG." It's an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. "Just a Dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.

My wish is that people would try to understand that it;s not "JUST A DOG." It's the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "Just a Man" or "Just a Woman."

So, the next time you hear the phrase "Just a Dog," smile. Because, they "Just don't understand."
